I think you will find very little disagreement in the SVG WG that  
xml:space needs to be deprecated, and that reusing white space  
properties would be the way forward. The problem is timing. First,  
this is a change request that is not addressing a bug on a  
specification that is in its later stages, and second I don't believe  
we have a sufficient number of existing white space properties to  
lift from an existing specification that is at a sufficiently  
advanced level of maturity that we can be allowed to reference it  
(you can't reference a Working Draft like CSS 3 Text Effects from a  
Recommendation, otherwise all hell might break loose).

So 1.3 will very likely deprecate xml:space, but it does not seem  
possible to address in 1.2.
